After a nice and relaxing weekend, it’s time for some intense cardio. It was hard because through out this workout I pushed myself really hard: I jumped as fast as I could, lunged deep and did my wood chops & squats fast.
1. Jump rope – 2 minutes
Lunges – 10 reps on each leg + 10 pounds dumbbells
2. Jump rope – 2 minutes
10 push ups
3. Jump rope – 2 min
Wood chops – 12 reps; 10 LB
4. Jump rope – 2 minutes
10 Squats with weights + 10 pulses
If you decide to follow this workout – don’t give up on jump roping. It may seem a little long and boring. But it’s a really great body cardio and conditioning exercise. If you don’t know how to use a jump rope, just keep jumping in place, or walk in place – it’s still better than sitting on a couch 🙂
Remember, intensity of your workout depends on your willingness and commitment to push yourself; but don’t overdo it!!
